records of this State in the office of the register of deeds for 
York county, in the same manner as the eleven preceding

chase for the State four hundred and fifty copies of each 
volume at five dollars per volume ; and the State librarian 
shall cause one copy of each volume to be placed in each 
registry of deeds in this State ; the remaining copies to be
